At Home This Winter
Winter in Dreamland comes 'officially' on 1 June and leaves on 30 August - to make way for Spring. But lately 'flexi-time' seems to be in practice - a lot. We have very wide variations in temperature from -6C to over 35C in parts of Dreamland. Where we live, it is not that extreme. We only see it goes down to 3C at night and up to around 25C at day (mostly 10C-24C).
Down the jetty at the front dam looking over to see (small) native wattle trees in flowers (the yellow tops) - wattles usually flower in Spring.
A milkweed (bishop's ball) with (inedible) fruits - in front of yellowing (diyng) bananas.
The jacaranda (ศรีตรัง) is losing leaves as it prepares for the full tree of purple flowers show in Spring.
A spider web in a kei apple tree. (Kei apples are native of south-east Africa; a long story how they come to grow on our place ;-)
Native cruxific orchids (some with pink and some with yellow flower heads) rising above dry grass. Winter is not kind to C4 plants. The green tree leaves belong to a native Australian mahogany tree - evergreen Winter or not.
